(please forgive the nasty exposure on these, they are still classified as "test shots" in the freezing cold weather after the sun set behind the trees, LOL!)

LOVE those pics!!! Just amazing, especially the one where they're running together (toward the camera). :)

Be careful bringing the camera in from outside though eh?:o

at what temps is it considered "unsafe" to bring a camera outside? guess i should ask these questions before i go do something stupid and break the thing, LOL! it was about -8 or so?... no wind though.

(oh and i found out that when you have sunshine coming through trees that give off shadows, and in the photo you have a white dog against the white snow, and a darker dog, and a man dressed in black from head to foot... if you don't know what you're doing - and i don't know frigg-all yet - then the resulting photos are *****! :eek: :frustrated: the camera goes crazy and doesn't know what to expose. i'll post some later and ask for advice on those missed shots... i was so disappointed. oh well it's a learning curve... i'm dragging my knuckles on the ground at this point :yell: )

It's more about the humidity when you bring it back in. It can permanently damage the lens.:o

All you have to do is leave a thick, new (no holes) bag, like a milk bag, outside and before you come in, you grab some cold air in the bag, put the camera in and knot it really tightly. That way the camera heats up to room temp without the humidity attacking it. Once it's warm (takes hours and hours if body components are metal), then you can take it out of the bag safely.:)

Not sure it's in the manual. They just say don't bring it inside.:D It's more of a "Dad knows best" tip.;)

Thanks for that tip Prin. I haven't taken my new camera outside yet but that is something I must remember when I do.

oh for the record... the kids did NOT eat that awful rawhide cane :yuck: , it was only to play with :D

December 30th, 2006, 10:44 AM
lol I was all, "No way! Techno's one of us?!" :D

Glad I could help with the camera thingy.:o

December 30th, 2006, 10:51 AM
prin if either dog chews on any kind of rawhide for more than 3 minutes, they get horrible cannon-butt :yuck: :( i mean 2 days of watery diarrhea... so after this nasty experience we lived through a few times... i'm afraid it's a no-no :o I think they are allergic to the chemicals in those things?

December 30th, 2006, 10:58 AM
Oh....:o Then yeah, good they don't get any. Boo can eat a whole one and you'd never know it.:o

my dogsitter's pitbull goes through about 3 per week of the BIG rolled-up white ones... and never a problem (but :yuck: still the same...) but now he knows to put them away when the kids go visit, because of what happens after... :eek:
